I went to hot yoga again today. It was lovely but there were a few things I'd forgotten since my last yoga session:
1) some people are annoying. Yeah, I'm looking at you, naked-from-the-waist-up chubby dude who was dripping sweat like a leaky faucet 30 seconds in. You too, excessively loud breather. And you, person who wears way too many clothes and makes me hotter just looking at her. I need to work on the peace and calm and acceptance part of yoga. Any tips, Siobhan?
2) the smell. There was an unpleasant aroma of hot, stale salt & vinegar chips lingering in the air in today's class. Super gross and annoying but in the end I realized it might have been me.
3) the increase in laundry. I don't have a large workout wardrobe so I'll be washing my stuff every other day. I guess that's just as well since those sweaty clothes shouldn't be sitting in the laundry basket too long anyway.
Despite that, yoga is still my high.
My low: I had finally convinced Spencer to apply for the same Churchill summer research trip that Chloe did a few years ago. But when he came home with the application form, it turns out they jacked up the price a LOT. It was basically free when Chloe did it, and it was such a great experience. So now we need to re-assess. All that convincing for nothing.
The other low - well, "low" is too strong of a word - is our summer planning indecision. I've been thinking we should get a pop-up tent trailer and go camping, but I'm not sure that it's a smart purchase. Chloe and Spencer aren't very interested at this stage in their lives; I guess we missed the boat on that. If we don't buy the trailer this year, we'd like to go on a road trip and/or rent a cabin. But I still think the pop-up trailer would be fun and if we're ever going to buy one, now would be the time. We can't seem to make a decision and I know it's only January but vacation time and cabins need to be booked now. I want to do it all.
Yes, I know - first world problems. I am very, very grateful that my lows are so high.
